The Imperial Kenyan Orphan Project, lovingly known as iKOP, is a branch of the Kenyan Orphan Project charity founded in 2001 by 3 medical students. Active at Imperial since 2010, we share in their vision to eradicate poverty and social exclusion and improve the lives of orphans affected by HIV/Aids in Kenya.
KOP is supported by a number of UK universities, each making a huge and valuable difference to the lives of hundreds of children. Each summer, a group of Imperial Students form the summer team who travel to Kisumu, West Kenya, for two weeks to directly work on the projects that we support.
Find out more about our society here, where we have posts explaining what our volunteers actually thought of their trip, the latest news and events, more information on our projects, and much more!
